Project Team: The Reading Park Project
Karlos and Moses are the co-founders of The Conscious Connect, Inc., a nonprofit with the mission to eradicate urban “book deserts.” Their project seeks to activate underutilized spaces along the Salem Peace Corridor welcoming places to read a book, have an event, or learn something new.
The Reading Park Project will promote education, peace, and culture through the revitalization, beautification, and activation of an underutilized space. Through the power of community building, the project will establish a creative and communal space for children, youth, and families to engage in educational, cultural, and civic activities—which will cultivate communal ownership of safety zones and restore neighborhood pride within the Salem Peace Corridor.
